Donate so the young medical students can carve me up.

Nope the medical students can't have me, but hopefully all my organs are good enough to find a new home and I die in a way that makes that possible.

I won't care. I'll be dead. I do have a diner card though.
However I don't think they will want my liver.

Everything is pre-planned and paid for including service and grave and headstone. Cost: Around $10,000.

Dumbass. You could have invested that money in an IRA or other, and made a lot more for your heirs to bury you, and also have some left over to help with grandkids' school costs, etc.
Prepaid funerals are the biggest scam there is. THEY make the interest off your money, not you.

They don't make very much interest today, unless they are in a tax free municiple bond.

Dispite Obamacare, I plan to use mine up and die when the good Lord decides it is time.

David, Is it too cold to meet at the Cherry Street McDonalds? I know it is too chilly to panhandle.

Even with all the stock market fluctuations in the last decade, my IRA's have grown considerably. At my age, I'm able to withdraw some here or there, penalty-free (of course I have to pay the tax), and have a nice vacation once a year.
Do THAT with a prepaid funeral plan.

I would agree with you but with the investment return as of late, it looks like I might have made a good deal. Don't forget to figure in inflation. You know the inflation that Obama refuses to mention.

Then Ralph the tax free municipal bonds are not really tax free. It makes my social security, 85% taxable because of my income. BTW, not a bad year in investing.

And don't forget that your tax rate will be lower after 65, as you withdraw funds from an IRA. So it all balances out.

Good point about IRA's. But, the bonds are outside of my IRA. My IRA investments is great because that is where I trade stocks. That way I don't have to pay capital grains if I see at a profit. And doing it online cuts the commissions some 90%. Funny I am making more now then when I was working.
